Samsung HW-K950 Dolby Atmos review

 

Thrilling Dolby Atmos experience ; Excellent matching of all components ; Wireless, hassle-free surround sound ; Rich and powerful bass ; Thin enough to rest beneath your TV

Midrange can be flat and boxy ; No DTS surround sound decoding ; Wireless satellite speakers emit white noise

You’ll pay handsomely for it, but Samsung’s HW-K950 soundbar offers a thrilling Atmos experience that really must be heard to appreciate.

The Samsung HW-K950 is the best sound bar we've ever heard

 

The Samsung HW-K950 Atmos sound bar offers the best sound for the money and should appeal to serious movie and music fans alike.

The Samsung HW-K950 is one of the best sound bars we've ever heard for both movies and music. The dedicated rear speakers deliver increased immersion compared to single-speaker designs. It's cheaper than buying a Dolby Atmos receiver and speakers.

It's expensive for a sound bar, and DTS support is limited. Dolby Atmos is only available on a limited number of titles compared with other surround formats.

The Samsung HW-K950 combines the discreet looks and simple setup of a sound bar with truly impressive sound for both movies and music.

Samsung HW-K950

 

If you fancy getting into Dolby Atmos but don't want to cut holes in your ceiling or cocoon yourself in cables then Samsung's HW-K950 could be the answer.

Samsung’s amazing Atmos soundbar system brings you immersive 3D sound while keeping clutter to a minimum, and delivers Samsung’s best-ever sound quality in the process. Only the overzealous subwoofer lets the side down – and budget buyers need not apply.

Samsung HW-K950 Soundbar with Dolby Atmos review

 

Welcome to the next generation of sound

Incredible sound quality ; Dolby Atmos support ; 4K passthrough ; Good value

Only stereo DTS support ; Needs specific room setup ; Needs the right sources ; Expensive vs non-Atmos products

The K950 is a real flag waver for Samsung's audio division. It's been designed and built completely in house, working closely with Dolby's engineers to perfect the Atmos capabilities - and the results are more spectacular than any sound bar we've heard...

Samsung HW-K950 review

 

More HDMI inputs and room EQ, plus DTS decoding, would have been nice, but that doesn't stop Samsung's premium soundbar system from being a genuine delight. Dynamic, immersive sonics

Samsung HW-K950 soundbar gives you wireless Dolby Atmos from the box, we have a listen

 

We've been harking on about Dolby Atmos and extra height channels in a surround sound setup for a while now, but you've really only been able to replicate the more immersive experience at home for yourself if you had a supported AV receiver. Samsung's...

Samsung HW-K950 review: Fantastic surround-sound — at a price

 

Highly impressive sound quality, but one too many caveats for a wholehearted recommendation

Atmos Blu-rays sound amazing ; Completely wireless setup ; Good support for streaming services

DTS soundtracks are decoded in stereo ; Occasionally hissy rear speakers ; Expensive for a soundbar

Despite all this, I’m a big fan of the HW-K950. Sonically, it’s the most accomplished soundbar I’ve ever had the pleasure to clap ears on. It sounds equally at home with music as it does with movie surround-sound source material, and puts in a truly...
